pervez-musharraf56A video of former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf singing a duet has become a viral sensation on YouTube, especially in Pakistan where members of parliament are deciding whether he should face treason charges.

The video embedded below shows the former military ruler singing and clapping away with Sufi musician Ustad Hamid Ali Khan, apparently somewhere in London.

According to the Telegraph, General Musharraf surprised another London concert audience recently when he took to the stage to play the Tabla bongo drums after complaining that the featured drummer was not keeping good time.

Have a watch, it’s pretty amusing. The other must watch (I’ve included below) is a clip of Boris Yeltzin’s numerous public outbursts, particularly his singing and dancing drunk spectacle.

Musharraf is currently in the UK as courts in Pakistan consider bringing him to trial.
